1500 Rabbis outraged that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden wants to keep ‘2-state solution’ viable by pressuring Israel to not apply sovereignty to Israel’s biblical heartland, to resume funding the Palestinians [despite its financing of ‘Pay to Slay’ Jews] and reopen the PLO headquarters in Washington.

Mahmoud Abbas fumes at further Israeli cuts to tax transfers as deduction keeps pace with the additional $70 million the PA paid to jailed terrorists, or families of the dead terrorists who attacked Israelis.
As part of the fight against terrorism, Israel has been cutting tax dollars paid out to the Palestinian Authority (PA) for quite some time. The reason for this is that the PA keeps using their own taxpayers’ money it collects from Israel to make payments to terrorists and their families – dollars intended for administrative and humanitarian purposes for the Palestinian people.

“The United States condemns the Palestinian Authority’s payments to terrorists and their families,” warns Edgar Vasquez, a White House spokesman, “This is unconscionable and must stop if there is to be any hope for peace.”

The Trump administration is warning the Palestinian Authority that severe US aid cuts to Ramallah may be in the offing unless it ends its compensation program for the families of murderers and terrorists convicted by Israel.
Responding to reports that the family of the killer of Ari Fuld, an American citizen, would receive official compensation for the terrorist act, a White House official noted that recent congressional legislation compels the administration to “restrict the use of Economic Support Funds that directly benefit the Palestinian Authority” unless the State Department “certifies that the PA has taken steps to end the practice of providing payments to individuals, and families of individuals, who committed acts of terrorism.” Continue Reading »

According to Israel’s Shin Bet security agency, most lone-wolf terror attacks are ‘Palestinian agenda’ motivated.
– But, for many Palestinians who suffer from mental disorders, are the victims of religious, sexual or financial entanglement, or victims of physical abuse by family members, they see the monetary windfall of Abbas’ government that pays extremely well for murdering Israelis as the perfect solution of escaping from their troubled lives, while also becoming a national hero.
